Hey Hunter - As you can probably tell i am a science guy first and foremost...I wanted to make that distinction because i thought your post read like the Hermetic principles were truths...Now as far as Amplitude and Pressure vs. Mechanical waves, I'll be honest. I had to look it up after reading your reply. The way I was taught about sound was the slnky on a table, basic mechanics...I did read this morning that a mechanical wave(sound) could also be called a pressure wave - I never heard described that way before and i was a little suprised, but you are correct in saying that it can be described that way. As far as Amplitude, my point was that it is not a volume knob and and Amplitude does not equal volume. I think your essay reads like it is a volume knob of sorts. Either way, i think we are basically saying the same thing..

Also, I have no problem with your work..Im not a huge fan of the Matrix, but in some cases it makes the unlistenable, listenable. My favorite example of that is 7/17/76. I know that is not your work, but it exemplifies for me the need for a matrix. I guess my favorite piece of your work would be 6/22/73. You did a fine job on that one.

Anyhow, I am glad you did not see my opinion of your essay as a straight slam. I just thought it read like you were passing off those principles as straight science. Being an engineer, I get caught up in the details very easily..Peace

Cool. Thanks.

Regarding my use of the Hermetic Principles, I would not include them if I thought they were false. Science cannot prove or disprove that the universe is Mental, for example; it just falls outside of the realm of objective science.
